Depends: Allergy to dog can manifest in various ways. One could have nose, eye, chest or skin symptoms. If one has dog allergen induced asthma then breathing in dog allergen can induce an asthma attack.

An allergic reaction: Depending on how allergic you are, you should always carry an albuterol inhaler, or perhaps an epi-pen with you. You never know what you may be exposed to, even with the best precautions.
